Detecting gerrymandering with mathematical rigor
(20200206)In recent years political parties have more and more expertly crafted political districtings to favor one side or another, while at the same time, entirely new techniques to detect and measure these efforts are being ... 
An introduction to KAM theory II: The twist theorem
(20190330)The KAM (Kolmogorov Arnold and Moser) theory studies the persistence of quasiperiodic solutions under perturbations. It started from a basic set of theorems and it has grown into a systematic theory that settles many ...

Locally decodable codes and arithmetic progressions in random settings
(20181109)(1) A set D of natural numbers is called tintersective if every positive upper density subset A of natural numbers contains a (t+1)length arithmetic progression (AP) whose common differences is in D. Szemeredi's theorem ... 
Large girth approximate Steiner triple systems
(20180928)In 1973 Erdos asked whether there are nvertex partial Steiner triple systems with arbitrary high girth and quadratically many triples. (Here girth is defined as the smallest integer g \ge 4 for which some gelement ... 
New Applications of the Polynomial Method to Problems in Combinatorics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20161013)Ernest Croot will discuss some new applications of the polynomial method to some classical problems in combinatorics, in particular the CapSet Problem. The CapSet Problem is to determine the size of the largest subset A ...
